”From the time I was a teen to now - my early 40’s - I’ve suffered from frequent breakouts, oily skin and cystic acne. I’ve tried too many products that promise to eliminate the acne and don’t come through. I’ve been to my doctor, a dermatologist and an esthetician - none could recommend nor prescribe a product as good as this one. As soon as I started using this product, it gave immediate results. I use this product everyday - morning and at night. I have even purchased these products for my sisters to try, since they also suffer from the same skin problems as I do. So far, they also agree that this is a miracle product and plan to continue using it.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) bottle Id Monolaurin Gel
INGREDIENTS: Alcohol, Aqua/Water/Eau, Glyceryl Laurate, Glycerin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine

Apply as often as needed throughout the day.

can prep, tone, mattify, disinfect, soothe, heal

i'm never without a bottle of this on my vanity. it does several things for me. i use it on my t-zone and cheeks after washing in the morning to disinfect, tone, mattify and minimize pores before i put on my base (vmv skin savvy 60). it preps my skin and makes it easier to blend my base. i've also stopped using anti-perspirants altogether and apply this on my underarms every morning to treat and prevent sweat acne and bacteria. plus i haven't seen chicken skin in quite some time (even my laser therapist has given my pits compliments). i also use this to day-old post-waxed skin, on occasional zits, would-be-zits, allergic itchy bumps, red inflamed bumps, anything that requires some soothing and healing. the only caveat: i've tried bringing this with me on several travels and the plane ride doesn't seem to sit well with it. it bursts out from the sealed bottle and messes up my toiletry kit. to this day, i still haven't figured out a way to seal it tightly to survive a long flight.

Best Skincare Product from VMV!

As much as I want to spend all day talking about this, there isn't much to say but BEST PRODUCT EVER! I use at least 3 VMV products daily and 7 overall, but amongst them all, this one is irreplaceable. It's not necessarily a spot corrector but me and partner use it for pimples that are just about to break through the surface, and it works like a charm, every time! It can also be used as a matttifying agent before applying makeup. But best of all, it serves as an amazing EXFOLIATOR, 4-5 days after my brazillian wax, I apply this to the waxed area everyday until the growing hairs finally break through the skin's surface. I have not had a problematic ingrown hair since I started using this. Just buy it, it'll surprise you in so many wise you've never imagined.

Great cooling, clearing serum!

I always look forward to this part of my skincare routine because I love how this gel feels! It's cooling (ah, perfect after a long hot day) and you can feel your pores tightening. It also helps dry out pimples super fast! A must for oily skinned ladies out there!

Really does wonders

I had a REALLY REALLY bad breakout about a month ago and it was then that my friend recommend this product to me. I was hesitant at first because it was a bit pricey, but my friend attested that vmv really did cure her breakout in hs. So I then decided to give it a go, i purchased the red better flare up cleansing cream (because the whole id line wasn't available back then) with this gel and the dewy tree tea tree mask. To tell you the truth, i was a bit skeptical at first because i didn't know if this was the one drying up my pimples or the mask, but i tried using the mask as a spot treatment to one of my acne and i did the same with the gel ( i reinforced it several times during the day) and it was then that i confirmed that it was the gel that was doing wonders. It really helped considering that I wasn't using the whole ID line of vmv for pimples. I'm currently using this with the ID toner and the same cleanser and the results are amazing!! I actually don't have any breakouts right now but I hope that it helps with the blackheads and keeping my pimples at bay.Now all I have to do is take care of the pimple scars that were long on my face even before this product and my dull skin. The only downside is that the ID toner and this gel are almost always out of stock here. I'm about to run out, so please restock!! LOL :)

A Skin Saver

This is the perfect product for oily skin. The gel is very easy to apply and leaves my oily skin fresh and clean. It dries up pimples overnight, I guess it's because of the alcohol content. My husband (with dry skin), tried using Id Monolaurin Gel, but it did not work for him. I guess this is best for oily / combination skin only, or if just follow-up with a moisturizer after using the gel. As for me, my skin loves this product. It works well. Highly recommended.

Ultimate skin saviour!! MUST HAVE!!

I cannot even emphasize enough how great this product is! For about 4-5 months I've experienced the worst breakout of my life and I've tried SO MANY products - acne gels, toners, astringents, spot treatments, home remedies, frequent trips to the derma, microdermabrasion - to no expense. It was so frustrating having new zits and whiteheads pop up just when one finally dried out, it seemed like a never ending battle with acne. Even more depressing were the scars that were left behind and I just couldn't go out of the house with no make up on because of this. VMV's Id Monolaurin Gel is the BEST and MOST EFFECTIVE acne treatment I have ever tried!! I swear it's so effective. It targets the acne-causing bacteria and works just on that spot (it doesn't dry out the surrounding skin unlike ALL the other products I've tried before). I would apply this all over my face 3 times a week, as well as use this as an acne spot treatment. It significantly reduces inflammation and treats pimples in a few days time. Love that it also treats chicken skin and other bumps not limited to the face. All around skin saviour!! I love love looove this product, definite must have in every girl's beauty arsenal! <3

Derma-like treatment and care

This is one of my go-to help bottle when my skin acts up crazy for as long as I can remember. It's a refreshing all-around treatment for your skin (not just your face). It cleans, treats, mattifes, gently exfloiates, and protects your skin. It is potent but gentle. It has a bit of an alcohol scent but don't let that scare you. This is formulated even for the young (like 9+ age) so trust that it is gentle. Even dermatologists recommend this. Tip: save the bottle and box and bring thrm with you to any VMV store to earn points for next purchase. Or buy from beautymnl and get freebies during promo period :-)

Real face-saver!

It's my second time to buy a product from VMV Hypoallergenics. The first product I bought was the Red Better Spot Corrector and I loved it. Buying the Id Monolaurin Gel was a bit of dilemma for me because I'm a self-confessed kuripot and this item was almost twice the price of the previous product I bought. However, when this item was put on sale, I immediately grabbed the opportunity to order it and I must say that there never was a day that I regretted my decision. I have already been using this product for the past two weeks and I am impressed! There had never been a product so effective in clearing my skin! I am that kind of girl who gets new pimples everyday and ever since I bought the Id Monolaurin Gel, I think I only had two red spots which immediately cleared after a day or two of using this product! Real face-saver! ♥

Bye pimples!

This is the only product I use for pimples and I really love it! Whenever a pimple pops on my face, I just apply this gel and it would be gone in a few days. Must be applied moderately cause it can feel extremely dry because of the alcohol. I've been using this for almost 5 years now and I've only used up 3 bottles!

Works like magic!

At first, I was hesitant to try another product because more often than not, it only makes my pimples worse. However, even with the first use of this product, I got to experience its effectiveness. You will feel a slight stinging sensation (but that's when you'll know that yout product is working miracles on your skin ofcourse!) for a brief moment and then it will dry-off matte and feels fresh. and voila! you'll wake up in the morning with your dried-out zit or a smaller pimpy foe the big ones. Up to date, I'm still glad that I tried this product.

So much love!

It's really a frustrating and a horrible thing if you suffer from acne. Well, in my case I'm suffering from acne breakout for more than a year now. I would actually come to the point that I would just cry because I am really ugly because of these pimples. I tried a lot of products (I spent so much money on products that won't work) and big thanks to VMV Hypoallergenics for formulating such product. A bottle will last you a long time. And it can really help heal your acne. (Just don't expect that this product alone can give you a pimple-free face but swear, it helps.)

There are no words to describe how effective and helpful this product has been to me. I've been having breakouts ever since I've started college and after several visits to the derma and a careful and meticulous skin care routine, no effective solution has been met (although for the record, the oral medication from the derma did help but nobody likes chugging antibiotics for 3 straight weeks and feel their stomach melt because of the medication, I know, sad life). I have been using this for just about a week now and boy did my pimples shrink and fade. Although the product was supposed to be gradually introduced to your skin routine (since it really is kind of strong), I didn't really have to do that since my skin is practically used to stingy stuff applied to it all in the name of healing my breakouts. But bottom line is, THIS IS THE BEST ANTI-ACNE PRODUCT EVER (and that is coming from someone who has tried almost everything to cure her peoples for the past 4 years). I am practically giddy with gratitude and happiness for this product's existence!

Definitely a holy grail product for acne-prone Filipinas.

I've been using this religiously ever since I discovered it 4 years ago. I have Oily, sensitive skin and this really helps keep my acne at bay. It doesn't feel heavy and gets absorbed in the skin easily; A plus for oily skin peeps like me. Although this can be a bit pricey especially for students, I still think its definitely worth your every peso. Kudos to the VMV Hypoallergenics team!

Fave product for pimples

I've always been prone to breakouts and I used to have to go to my derma all the time to treat my pimples, but since I bought this and used it, I haven't really needed to have my face cleaned by the derma. I just put this on my pimples, and sometimes my whole face, and the small ones practically fade away overnight! The larger ones stay, but with constant application of the gel they fade away in a few days as well. This is one of my favorite products ever.

effective for blemishes and spot treatment

I've used this product for over 10 years now. It really takes care of the blemishes, personally I've used it to spot treat acne/pimples when I would have minor break outs from time to time. It's very effective. It was not harsh on my skin and I didn't experience any redness or stinging or any sensitivities after using it. The only wish is that - I hope they sold this in smaller quantities/bottles because I've found that a 120ml bottle is too much for me based on the type of usage I have of the product. But other than that overall it's a keeper!

Super nice

I have very sensitive skin and there was one time I had break outs which would not go away no matter what I apply to my skin, then I tried this, and it completely calmed my skin after about a week of daily use. I also apply this before applying my primer an I feel that it mattifies my skin even more.

Worth every penny!

I'm having the worst breakout of my life at 28. Worried with the blemishes it will bring, I decided to invest in VMV's Monolaurin gel. It's effective in minimizing pimples but stings a little upon application. I use it as sort of a primer because it's good in mattifying skin. So there, I get to hit two birds with one stone with the Monolaurin gel. It is truly worth the price tag.

Amazing product!

My mother and I have been using VMV products for as long as I could remember but I remember the first time I tried VMV's Id Gel was back in 2013 because I got it for my breakouts in time for a wedding. I put it on that night and it worked like magic! For me, personally, it was like a toner that cleanses your face and dries out your pimples without any sting or pain. Who can argue with that? It also works wonders as "back-ne" treatment. Since then, it's been a staple at home and I highly recommend it! I wouldn't say it's travel friendly because of the quantity and the size of the bottle but other than that, it's a great product.
